and small business. finally, president obama, please, ease up on all the regulations. i want to talk about this because nobody should be satisfied with 2% growth. let's talk to our friend dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. welcome to both of you. all right, dean, i think 2% is way too low. i think we should be striving for something that's more than twice and that history of america. why can't we get there? >> i agree that's way too low. your policies, they tried that unity, they're back in recession or maybe they're scraping along. that's not going to do it. the story here, two issues. one, we are going to see slower growth because we have lower population growth and that's because people didn't have kids 30 years old. i don't know if you want to blame president obama for that, that's strange, but you can do so. this was a qualitatively different type of recession. he had a housing bubble, it collapsed. that was not the nature of the recession in '74, '75, '81, '82. those were easy to get out of. easy to have strong growth because the fed deliberately raised inte
bunker. not too bad for a family of four. we're talking about some prime washington real estate at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the white house. president obama and his family get a rent free deal to live there for the next four years. you could say every american taxpayer owns just a little piece of the white house. felicia taylor, i wanted to talk to you about this. i saw this article in zillow had calculated this morning, just having fun, the white house isn't for sale. in terms of dollars and cents, if someone wanted to buy the white house what do you think it would be worth? >> about a cool $295 million. not such a big price tag. >> please. >> you certainly make enough to afford that, i know. anyway, zillow used public data and recent sales to figure it out. it buys you 50,000 square feet, 132 rooms, and three kitchens because one isn't enough. you got a pool, a movie theater, a bowling alley, that was because of the nixens, they asked for that one, a jogging track, which bill clinton added. the value of the white house got up, though, since obama came into town, up about 7% since 200
's absolutely right. everyone is talking now about al qaeda's new refuge across northern africa but how is the u.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it
. and they also revealed yesterday that he did talk to them and he apologized and their work, sans lance, goes on. >> gretchen: the 2012 campaign ended two months ago, but president obama didn't get the memo. in an unprecedented move, he's turning his reelection campaign into a tax exempt group. they will push his second term agenda. that is expected to include clashes with republicans over the nation's soaring debt. gun control and immigration reform. campaign manager jim messina will leave this new group. it has $5.3 million now in the bank. >> brian: if you live in chicago, you may be saying good-bye to those energy drinks. the democratic councilman wants to ban all drinks that contain a high amount of caffeine. that could mean dr. pepper. it would still allow red bull to be sold, since it contains less caffeine than other drinks. the crackdown goes a step further than a previous one that wanted energy drinks banned for people under 21. >> steve: so they will sell red bull in the home of the bulls. >> brian: yes. >> steve: talk about man's best friend, dna collected from a dog's mouth has help
, that president obama said we're going to have an economist on today on how you get -- you know, we're going to talk to him. he says the one thing that would hurt the economy is in cuts in social security or medicare or medicaid. any type of reform to those things. >> to the true liberal -- >> other than raising taxes up to the level where you fund the promises that we've already made. the entitlements that we've already made and the guarantees we've made, they just want to raise taxes on somebody. i don't know who, to the point where we never actually reform medicare, medicaid or social security. >> the question i want to ask him, is there ever a time that he's making, is it now given where we are in the economy? >> well, the question is, you put in a hundred and you take out 400 in medicare and the government covers 300. >> and it makes no sense. >> well, no, but there are people that think that the government's roll is to provide that 300. and so we should raise taxes to the point where you -- it doesn't matter that you -- >> right. >> it doesn't matter. that is the redistribution. >> tha
